So this has been a drink I have been excited to make for a while! I kept seeing Brazilian Lemonade recipes floating around and was really suprised when I realized it had limes and sweetened condensed milk. It seemed like an interesting combination of flavors! I got around to make it last weekend when I was on vacation as a fun and refreshing drink to share! Sadly, it was really quite dark when I was trying to take pictures it was really dark and stormy but that’s the risk I take with trying to write posts when I am not at home! 😛
So this really tastes like a creamy limeade, it has just the right amount of sweetness to balance the tang from the limes. I think I ended up drinking about 2/3 of the pitcher because it tasted SO good!
The trip I was on was to Omer, MI which was super fun! It’s a tiny town over on Lake Huron so I got to go fishing for walleye and spend some much needed time sleeping in! One of my favorite parts of being up there is there is in the pond out back, there is a big ole’ snapping turtle named Fred. I love going out there and feeding him food along with playing with the little turtles too.
